Yuan-Cheng Fung Best Paper Award
Call for Papers

Dear Colleagues  

With the approval and support of Dr. Yuan-Cheng Fung and his family, and on behalf of the editorial board of Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics (MCB, ISSN: 1556-5297 (printed); ISSN: 1556-5300 (online)) and Tech Science Press (TSP), we are delighted to announce the establishment of the Yuan-Cheng Fung Best Paper Award on the occasion of Dr. Yuan-Cheng Fung's 100th birthday, in tribute to his remarkable contributions to biomechanics and the founding of MCB. The 2019 award will be announced in September 2019, and annually thereafter.

The Yuan-Cheng Fung Award aims to recognize the distinguished researcher(s) whose article published in MCB reflects outstanding, creative and groundbreaking research contributions to theoretical and experimental biomechanics and spawns new ideas for solving the problems facing the biomechanics engineering science community at the molecular, cellular, and organ levels.

We cordially invite you to submit your outstanding work to MCB to join the competition (submission website: Since this is near the end of the year, papers published in MCB from the 4th Issue of 2018 to the 2nd Issue of 2019 (3 issues) are eligible for consideration to receive the 2019 award.

The winning paper will be selected by the Award Committee which includes all MCB associate editors, selected editorial board members, an appointed TSP representative, and an (honorary) member of the Fung family. The first author(s) of the winning paper will be awarded $1,000 USD, announced in September 2019. Second place awards are possible if justified by the quality of the papers received.

We are looking forward to receiving your wonderful paper and to your participation and contribution to this great event. Together, we continue to grow the strong field of biomechanics established by Dr. Yuan-Cheng Fung.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us (Dalin Tang at, John Chen at
